About this Project:
As the Covid-19 crisis spread across the world, we found ourselves feeling helpless as we saw frontline and essential workers didn't have enough PPE to protect them. We gathered together and started producing masks for the last few months. After satisfying the current local needs, we're now offering our "pocket mask", a machine-washable, non-sterile alternative protective mask.
After several design iterations and much inspiration from makers around the world, our favorite style of facemask is for the everyday person. Great for shopping trips, socializing, and being on-the-go in public places, our masks can expand and contract due to the flexible pleats that keep the seal and coverage even while laughing or yawning. Fold the mask up and put into your pocket or purse when not in use.
We will donate one mask to an elderly person here on Kosrae as a result of your purchase.
Disclaimer: These masks are not direct substitutes for N95 surgical or procedural masks and are not FDA approved. However, these masks, if used correctly, should help reduce person-to-person droplet transmission of the virus significantly.
Our latest design features accordion folding pockets that provide easy access to cards and cash while fitting comfortably in any pocket or purse. The plastic-free ID window is both functional and eco-friendly. There are quick access card slots on the side to hold three important cards safely in place. It can hold 10-12 cards and a dozen bills very comfortably.
Natural is our 100% pure banana fiber wallet with an elegant laser etched logo, magnetic snap and the undeniable natural beauty of the long, lustrous fibers. If you're concerned about directly recycling your wallet, natural is the way to go. We always suggest repurposing our wallets into memory keepers though. Wallets seem to hold many sentiments and stories for all of us, don't they?
Seaside & CocoTrees designs are our collaboration with Scott Beitz (@scottydman), who grew up in Kosrae. He took these two photos at the beach across from our factory.
Sunset Wave, SharkFisher, Tribal Sun and Tribal Ocean designs are from world-renowned artist, John Alefaio, from Tuvalu and Marshall Islands. John uses traditional motifs to keep the imagery of his ancestors alive. Follow @pacific_ocean_arts.
